My last blog entry – Where’s Dr. Dobson – was months ago. The question Where’s Judy is fitting after half a year of silence. Any authors out there will know what I mean when I say, “I’ve been MIA (Missing In Action) in the bowels of book publishing.” Following the most productive writing year of my life, I now sit in the Waiting Room eagerly anticipating the Proof copy of Living in the Names of God: His Majesty and Me.
One year ago on July 11, 2012 God signed me up to teach a Living in the Names of God bible study. Yet-to-write were my book and the accompanying bible study lessons. So my casual writing turned URGENT as I became locked into weekly deadlines of delivering a chapter and a lesson. Twenty-one chapters later the book will be available in August; the bible study will soon follow by the end of the year.
One year later Praise Squier (Alias for Judy Squier; Judy means praise) is singing God’s praise as I thank Him for His faithfulness in the completion of this next book. He’s carried me, inspired me, empowered me and resuscitated me every step of the way.
I pass on to you a section from the upcoming book about God’s love song, which has wooed me and WOWed. May you, too, hear Him singing. Blessed are we when we wake up and hear God singing His love song with our names in it!
“Yes, God Himself is the song when the music goes out of our lives. That’s one of the reasons I fell in love with eighteen of His Hebrew names. Each name has sung a unique love song from God’s heart to mine (and yours).
Remember I created you and have big plans for your life.
Feeling low? Allow Me to be your high.
Whatever you need today, I AM.
Nestle in, little lamb. You’re safe with me, your Good Shepherd.
Feeling alone? You can’t go anywhere that I’m not already there.
Your pain is My pain. Be comforted knowing that
I removed pain’s stinger on the cross.
The battle is already won. Trust Me and raise the victory flag.
Allow Me to wipe your smudged slate clean.
Trade in all your insufficiencies for My All-Sufficiencies.
Allow Me to save the day.
My more-than-enough exceeds your never-enough.
Are you ready to hand over your life so I can bless you?
Allow Me to be your rock-solid stability in life’s squalls.
I’m with you in your broken places.
Watch Me use them to heal you.
Experience My peace that guarantees
smooth sailing in every storm.
Believe Me. My work in you will be a WOW!
Fret not. You are heaven-bound and in Me you can enjoy it now.
My Specialty is transforming your wastelands into worshipful wonderlands.
My book Living in the Names of God is available on Amazon.
